A MR system that has been designed and optimised specifically for MSK extremity imaging applications
We are enabling a world where high-field compact MRI systems unlock opportunities for enhanced clinical diagnostic imaging services close to the patient point-of-care.
Our compact MRI magnet (including cold head) weighs less than 450 Kg (990 lbs) compared with a whole body MRI system where the mass can exceed 5,000 Kg (11,000 lbs).
Please note: Product is a prototype only – not yet available for sale as a regulatory approved medical device
(….. but we are working to change that asap)
When compact magnets utilise Magnetica's patented asymmetric technology, the body part to be scanned does not need to be positioned as far inside the MRI system.
A 3T MR system's magnetic field is around 60,000 times stronger than the Earth's magnetic field. 3T systems deliver increased image resolution capabilities, which is crucial for high-quality MR imaging.
Our high / very high field compact superconducting magnets are smaller, lighter, and help to deliver more economical and smaller MRI systems, whilst maintaining the gold standard of imaging quality expected by clinicians. MRI systems using our technology are capable of being installed and operated in a range of new locations previously inaccessible to whole-body MRI systems, opening up a range of opportunities for the operator.
Our compact superconducting magnets are designed using our asymmetric magnet IP. Shifting the imaging zone towards the patient chair/bed improves patient comfort by reducing how far the limb or head being imaged needs to be moved into the MRI system.
